Do you watch House Hunters on HGTV?

Those are some of the most spoiled and entitled people I have ever seen in my life.

The ones with a high budget are always going on an on about things that don't matter to anyone else, such as vaulted ceilings, stainless steel appliances, double vanities in the "en suite" master bathroom, the must-have island in the kitchen, the "open concept" living room, and a whole bunch of other bullshit nonsense.

Plus, the wives are always so critical of EVERYTHING, not to mention demanding.

And then you have poor people with a thousand dollar per month rental budget, who expect a three bedroom house in a gated community, with all of the aforementioned amenities.

Arrrrggghhh!!! These people drive me nuts!!

This isn't even remotely a secret anymore.

Any show on HGTV that uses the "pick one" house is dealing with buyers who already have the house under contract.


When you see the flipping shows calling an agent to put in an offer....that's fake too. They bought the house before they even opened the door.

Buyers get the basics on those flipping houses, but those custom tables and custom pieces that some shows do? The buyers never get those unless they pay extra. (This is especially so on Fixer Upper, because all of that is for their Magnolia business, so they can sell more.)

You do realize all these people are coached and the shows are heavily scripted, don't you? How boring would it be if every home seeker went in and just loved everything. The producers of these types of shows want you to be aghast at what you see because that'll keep you coming back to watch again a lot faster than if everyone is sugar sweet. I know you want to kick the TV screen out when you see a husband and wife walk into a 800 sq. ft. master suite and immediately start complaining "IT'S SO SMAAAAAAAL - I don't think our furniture would fit in here". But please, resist the urge. Don't lower yourself into believe that shit is real.

I think one of the funniest I saw was a gay couple looking for a house in Palm Springs. One of the men insisted that he didn't want to even see any houses that had only oval toilets, he wanted elongated. To me he was trying to tell everyone his huge cock simply wouldn't fit in a round toilet, but he never said that out loud. They would reject every house that didn't have elongated toilets when for probably under $500 you could change any toilet.

House Hunters proves out the theory that most people can't see envision a bunch of low-cost changes to things that "ruin" a house for them.

In all the time I've been watching House Hunters (US and International), there have been no regular "hosts" or agents.

It has always been some local RA who shows the buyers around, and the RA's have always been different, depending on the city.

I've never seen a repeat agent, come to think of it.

replies 40Nov 14, 2017 3:24 PM +00:00

R40 Richard and Adrian have both been on multiple episodes. Adrian may be their star go-to person for Paris, since she has her fans; I think Richard is one of several for London and the suburbs.

I have to say I can't remember ever seeing the same agent twice on the domestic shows, though. And I've seen a handful of other agents on HHI who have appeared more than once - there's a Katerina Witt lookalike that I think has done multiple shows for.....mmm, maybe Germany or Austria. But it doesn't happen often. Adrian and Richard are the outliers.

Thank you, R41. That makes it clear. I was beginning to think that I was watching some other show.

I'll watch for those two next time. However, HH Int'l is pretty diverse as far as countries, and I only occasionally catch an episode where they're in the UK or Germany/Austria.

I've seen a few in Africa, lots in the Caribbean and Mexico, one in Hungary, a couple in small French towns, etc. Rarely the UK and never in Germany.

replies 59Nov 19, 2017 6:29 PM +00:00

R59 With some people I assume they have a business to promote, or something like that.

But I think a lot of other people are just sucked in by the attention.

Financials are small - I read that the couple gets $500. Not each, not per day....PERIOD. And that's taxed.

I have to say this: There's been a number of times when I knew an area they were showing, or was interested in a neighborhood of a house they were showing, and if I caught a glimpse of the house number, or some other identifying thing, I've been able to find it online.

(This is how I learned that they make up the prices, when they had a house in a suburb of Chicago they claimed was 1.2M (way over budget) but I found it online for 500K (well under their budget.)

Anyway, for some houses it can be easy to find them with a little Googling, and I personally would not want that attention, or have someone know that much about me and my home, for safety reasons.

Pet peeves for these shows (which depress me so much I can't watch anymore) 1: the couples who tell you they need a huge living/dining room because "we entertain SO MUCH"! Look, if your friends like you, they'll come to where ever you are. But you don't need to tell us over and over how you entertain "SOOOOO MUUUUUUCH!!!" 2: the people who need an enormous back yard for their (usually miniature) dog. There was a time dogs were just happy to have an outdoor area. Unless you're leaving them out there for a month or something, they really don't need THAT much room. They're basically just going to take a nap till you come home, anyway. 3: the people who come in and gripe about the neat old kitchens and bathrooms, practically yelling, "All this would have to GO!" Haven't they ever seen 1930's tile before? Do they know how much all that stuff costs at Liz's Antique Hardware in L.A.? Basically, they're ready to trash rooms that look how Martha Stewart would do them, with some fresh paint. Those shows are just VOMITOUS!

They were hilarious because the guy wanted an old colonial home, and the lady wanted a brand new home. How in the fuck will they ever agree on a house??? But they did.

And when the agent showed them a home with 5 acres, they said it wasn't enough land! They own 6 alpacas, and said that they need tons of farmland for them.

They finally decided on a house built in 1640 (!!!) on 28 acres of land, for 1.4 million dollars.

Also probably the reason they didn't pick up "Down To The Studs" which was basically a flip show with two cute husbands.

Instead, we have a whole lotta husband/wife flip shows, including the Gaineses and the new HomeTown couple with the tall bearish dude, they are really fundie too.

As we are gearing up for our 2nd airing of the episode, we will be releasing some promo videos to remind y'all to tune in! You guys are our biggest strength ...

When HGTV was first getting started, it was about the house, the garden and real estate in general. The network had a program comparing three similar houses in three markets -- an expensive one (ie, San Diego), a mid-level market (ie Cincinnati) and an inexpensive market (Altoona, Pa.)

There's lots of "Does she know her husband is gay" moments on HH.

But also, they're all coached on what to say, which is why so many of the participants say the same things, like "character" and "charm" and "clean lines," a term that not everyone knows outside of a design studio.

I've actually seen a lot of gay couples on HH and HHI lately. (More so than on HGTV's other shows.)

Also probably the reason they didn't pick up "Down To The Studs" which was basically a flip show with two cute husbands.

I'm assuming they didn't pick up "Down to the Studs" because it was yet another generic flip show that brought nothing new (other than the fact that the guys are gay). I saw the pilot that they aired, and it wasn't much.

House Hunters and all their iterations is produced by Pie-Town Productions, named for P-Town. It's owned by two older lesbians with bad teeth.

A funny thing happened a few years ago when I was watching “House Hunters” on HGTV with my husband. We both noticed that gay and lesbian couples were regularly a part of the show that follows a couple look for a new house. But it wasn’t a very special episode, there was no overt statement …

The open concept, two sinks, countertops shit is mostly about what the companies what HGTV to SELL to their audience. HH used to vary a lot more, but these days, almost all of them are the same.

Some of the style ideas are nice, but honestly, I don't give a shit about half of what they talk about. I want a yard that has at least a little space from neighbors. I would love a master bedroom that doesn't face east, because I've had one that gets stuffy in the morning for years. I want to make sure there's no leaking, no flooding and that wires and plumbing are good.

If Chip and Joanna wanted to expand outside of Waco, they could. They're the top rated design show on HGTV, they can pretty much do whatever they want. The opted to use Waco as their home base because of their kids and their church and also as an excuse to only have white heterosexual couples. While I've never been to Waco, I'm pretty certain they have gays there. Now, they may not have gays that want Joanna's style in their house. I think it is pretty interesting that HGTV let them get away with having so little diversity on their show. When the uproar first started, you got a couple of mixed race couples thrown into the mix. I'm will to bet that the majority of their "home owners" actually come from their church. A friend worked on one of these shows for 15 years and there is a lot of fakery going on.

Chip and Joanna have quite the empire: The Silos (their retail store), the bakery, their real estate company, their construction company, her licensing deals with target and others. All these businesses are based on them being lifestyle stars. It seems weird that they would walk away from everything that they have built. A friend worked with a celebrity designer a couple of years ago. He had the same type of recognition and product lines but it all goes away when the TV show is off-air. They should be fighting for every TV minute they can get. My hunch is that ABC or someone bigger than HGTV has offered them a deal which they can't publicize until their current TV show has burned through the final season. HGTV is going to rerun their shows for twenty years.

R182 Vast majority of the people on the show are in Chip and Joanna's mega church. From what I heard and I know people in the HGTV world, to be on the show, you had to actually pay the amount of your "budget" and give Joanna COMPLETE freedom to do what she wanted. Plus, none of the furniture stays unless the homeowner buys it. That's why when they revisit the family, it is either immediately after the reveal or if it is later, they shoot them outside and don't show them inside. Also, they only do three or so rooms. The rest of the house is untouched.

Fixer Upper, the Scott brother shows, Flip/Flop shows are generally unrealistic. They make it look like they're doing everything and the prices quoted for it, especially on Fixer Upper and Flip/Flop, are super unrealistic.

I like the other shows a bit better. I'm sure some of it is faked too, but Home Town is usually forthright about, okay, 70K will get you this. Desert Flippers, same. They don't do everything. (In Palm Springs, it's almost always just de-80s-ifying a house.) And with Good Bones, it's usually a lot more spent and you see they almost always go down to the studs and reinvent it.

Also, half the fixer upper people live outside of Waco proper. There are tons of little communities around the bigger "city" and that's probably where most of those houses lie.

I drove to Waco awhile ago and there are many, many little towns before you actually get into the city limits.

Now where these people get the hundreds of thousands for those houses is another matter. They can't all be employed by Baylor.

What do you mean unrealistic? All the Flip or Flop couples give a rundown of their expenses.

R186 For the shows where I said "unrealistic" I meant that there's just no way that the scale of renovations they're doing could be done for what they say is the budget. Even factoring in that they may get wholesale discounts, and they probably pay their immigrant laborers like shit, it still is usually far less than what a renovation at that scale would actually cost.

I notice this especially with the original Flip or Flop and the Vintage Flip show. The various Flip/Flop shows have a varying degree of realism depending on the area. The Fort Worth ones seem within reason. But the Atlanta ones, it seemed like they were always doing radical renos for like 60K. I don't think so!

Home Town just seems a bit more realistic with what they do for a budget. They are clearly not doing the entire house. Good Bones seems more realistic because their budgets are usually higher, and because they're almost always getting super cheap houses and basically almost rebuilding them from scratch. And Desert Flippers, I noticed, will keep some elements and usually seems realistic, too (I know that market).

Add me to the chorus of those wanting MORE of the fabulous Adrian Leeds!!! I think they should just make her their “go to” agent for anyone moving to France - and Monaco too! Can you imagine how great it would have been if she were the agent showing the young gayling moving to Monaco what his options were?

While we’re at it, have Richard Blanco (I think that’s his name - bald, beard) the agent for London and surrounding areas. I get a kick out of his comments directly to the camera.

There was this really handsome gay guy in St John in the Virgin Islands, John McCann I think? Haven’t seen him in ages though. Give him some screen time.
